New Balance 2040 GL

—01. ENCAP midsole.

Words

The 2040 is one of the lesser seen US-made New Balance models. Certainly not as popular as the 998 or 993, it fairs just as well in daily wear, and ups the ante in running terms. The shoe is filled with technical advancements, making it easy to see why it's the brand's most expensive model.

New Balance M997GY

—01. Made in USA.

Words

It's hard for New Balance to go wrong when they use a variety of greys on their classic models and that theory definitely applies to this 997 reissue, now available through Firmament in Berlin. The interesting texture on the tongue and heel give the shoe enough detail, while the silhouette is where the true appeal lies.

—01. Navy.
—02. Light Grey.

Words

Lightweight Revlite soles have been added to New Balance's MT580 to create this modern interpretation of the brand's classic silhouette. The MRT580 is available in two clean colour treatments, but I can't help leaning towards the grey version.

New Balance ML999

01. ABZORB midsole.
02. Padded tongue.

Words

The 999 isn't one of New Balance's most well-known models, but this grey pair is one of their best this season. A subtle mix of materials and neutral shades make for a clean design, and a nice looking trainer.

New Balance MRL996 Grey

01. Suede & mesh.
02. Grey.

Words

All of my favourite New Balance styles lately seem to be in a plain grey colourway. Plain grey 998's are all over the Japanese shops but these classic 996's are a little easier to acquire for those of us in the west, from shops such as Sweden's Tres Bien Shop. They're even more throwback than 998's, with a slimmer profile.

New Balance 1500 GWS

01. Made in England.
02. Encap Sole.

Words

The 1500 might be my favorite New Balance model. The shape, smaller 'N' logo and the size of the tongue all make for a nice looking trainer.

New Balance 587

01

Image

—01. Made in USA.

Words

My favourite style of New Balance runner, and we all know there are tons of incredible options, is the often overlooked 587. The 587 is one of the elite few styles that New Balance makes that are made in the USA. They are incredibly unhip and orthopaedic looking, in their navy and grey exterior, but I love them anyway. There is something for me that transcends their chunky awkwardness, and it goes beyond their extreme comfort.
